Re: Match bullets for subsonic

Match bullets are not designed to open up. The general behavior they exhibit is to pencil straight through.

I am suspicious that would remove the blueing since it is a form of controlled oxidation.

I've got one in a box somewhere. Let me find it.

Found a old listing I had for it.

Re: Case Cleaning - Crushed Walnut media in primer pockets

I've sifted them out and put the brass back in the tumbler alone. After a few minutes most of the walnut was knocked loose. Noisy but effective.

Re: How do you measure barrel length

Since the length question has been answered I'll suggest a nice forearm. Might use a blast forwarding device.

Hmm all I heard was a thunk on the ignore filter after the response to me.

WTB 9 inch Seekins/Spikes BAR

I'm looking for a 9 inch Seekins or Spikes BAR, trying to match a pair of existing uppers I have. If interested I have a 8.75 Diamondhead VRS-T 556 I'd be interested in trading. If not shoot me a price.

You are not picking up on what people are telling you. Carbine gas is finicky as heck with subsonics. No tuning of buffer or anything else has really worked so far across the board. If you want sure functioning with subsonics opt for pistol length gas.

Re: AR Scope Mount for Vortex Ranger 1-4X24

Looking at the images for the Vortex mount it does not appear as beefy as the Burris AR-P.E.P.R. I put the Burris mount on the last Vortex scope I picked up and am very happy with it.

Re: polishing a mil-spec AR trigger ?

That is because you have to back it off from there till it will just function.
